"Any time somebody takes $150,000 (the suspension cost him $139,000 in salary)," Jackson said, "of course (the relationship is) going to change, no matter who it is. If my mom took some money, I'd still love her to death, but I'd still be upset about it. And (Nelson's) not my mom. So you can imagine how I feel."

I'd have to agree with Jackson on this one. It's similar to an NBA player signing a 3 year/28 million dollar extension on his contract, and demanding a trade even before the contract begins. It's the same thing ... someone taking money that they shouldn't from someone else. But dang it, I'm a man, and I'm a act like a man. Nobody gonna tell me whut to do! I'll rob you for yo money, but don't ya dare rob me fo mine, cuz I'm a man! I'm a man! I'm a man!

You're exactly right! As a Warriors season ticketholdler, I should be falling down on my knees thanking Jackson for his time here and being so open and honest with us now. He IS better than Kobe, or Michael, or Wilt, or, or, or... ANYBODY!!!

Jackson stole the money from an incompetent Robert Rowell. He, like every other mercenary player in the league, wants to play for a winner - he thinks that losing is someone else's problem, that he has nothing to do with a team losing. Looks like he'll get his wish, except that I hope he's traded to the Clippers.

Rowell just needs to find an owner more stupid than he is, not an easy task.
